|Jul-Sep 2015||Software Engineer, iGEM, Cambridge
Participated in the 2015 Cambridge-JIC iGEM Team under Prof Jim Haseloff. This year saw the introduction of the Hardware Track in which we developed an open-source programmable 3D-printable microscope. Worked to develop abstraction layers to integrate microscope into a variety of hardware contexts, including an XY translation stage, and to facilitate automation. Also focused on stitching and geometry algorithms to implement the backend of a seamless panning interface. Headed Arduino workshop during outreach day to teach sixth form students C++. The team won a gold medal and received four nominations.
|Jun-Oct 2013||Freelance Programmer
Provided freelance programming help to algorithmic cryptocurrency trading enthusiasts. This mainly involved writing interfaces to the MtGox exchange API in various languages, including Java, Objective-C and VBA.NET. One client, as a result of my Objective-C work, offered a job in New York as a mobile app developer.

Worked with the head of Detector Physics in the Charged Coupled Device section. Mainly assisted in the calibration of an infrared weather camera by designing a custom IR LED apparatus to provide reference points which were then used to create a projection map using a computational model written in IDL. Also prepared some space-based optical lenses.
